New project within SFB 914
It is our great pleasure to welcome Christoph Klein, Head and professor of Pediatrics at the Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital at LMU. On March 1st, 2012, he joined us in the SFB 914 with his project “Genetic and functional characterization of viral infections in humans” (project A8).
Prof. Klein and his group investigate the effects of STK4 deficiency on the immune system. Using the novel genetic defect as a paradigm he will perform immunological and cell biological studies in order to address the underlying mechanisms of increased susceptibility towards viral infections in STK4-deficiency.
